World must continue to focus a00ention on hostages' plight WASHINGTON (CNS) -- The continuing captivity of U.S. and other hostages in Lebanon must stay the focus of the world community, said a statement by Archbishop Daniel E. Pilarczyk of Cincinnati, president of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops. "Their plight, and that of the people of Lebanon, must re- main the focus, of attention and concerted action on the part of Americans and the interna- tional community," Arch- bishop Pilarczyk said in the statement. He issued the statement March 15, one day before the six-year anniversary of the cap- tivity of the longest-held of the hostages, Terry Anderson, Mid- dle East bureau chief for Associated Press. "One day of their captivity was unacceptable; six years ; an outrage," .A chbi' Pilarczyk said. "The pain and torment suf- fered by these innocent men for so long is a mirror image of the agony of the Lebanese nation as a whole." Anderson is one of six Americans believed held-by pro-Iranian Muslim extremists in Lebanon. Four others from Britain, two from Germany and one from Italy are also believed held in captivity. "With God's grace, may they have the faith, hope and courage to continue to endure the heavy burdens of their cap- tivity," Archbishop Pilarczyk said.
